AllMusic Review by

A stand-alone sequel to the 2011 reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise, 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes replaces Patrick Doyle with Grammy- and Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino, who also lent his considerable talents to director Matt Reeves' previous outings Cloverfield and Let Me In. Big, bright, and brooding, yet surprisingly nuanced, Giacchino captures the mystery and the might of the series, offering up a rousing score that finds the middle ground between his evocative work on the television series Lost and the bold strokes he displayed with J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot.
